Vigelandsparken, also known as Frognerparken, was designed by sculptor Gustav Vigeland to display the more than 200 sculptures of stone, bronze and iron he created. A massive Monolith with 121 carved into a single stone captures the beauty, pain and struggle of human existence.
The park was completed between 1939 and 1949, a time of war and social upheaval around the world.
The morning I visited a soft rain was falling and it deepened the effect of his work, adding drama and emotion to the faces of the sculptures.
If I lived in Oslo I would visit the park at all times of the day, chasing the light to see the way it paints the figures.
